Democrats: Bush hinders new Iraq course
Source: AP

WASHINGTON - A Democratic senator on Saturday accused President Bush and congressional Republicans of hindering his party's attempts to chart a new course in Iraq even though U.S. troops are fighting violence "they cannot possibly resolve."

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., said increased troop levels ordered earlier this year to give Iraqi politicians breathing space to meet political and diplomatic goals have not had the intended result.

"That means our troops are fighting for a peace that we seem more interested in achieving than the Iraqi politicians do themselves," Casey said while delivering the Democrats' weekly radio address.

The White House has said there have been positive developments in Iraq, such as a reduction in violence and increased economic capacity.

2. These "ball-less democrats" better grow a pair and start stirring some dust...
It's about time the Democratic congressmen let this country know what is going on in the houses of Congress. The repugs are stonewalling at every step, and the preznit is going to veto anything that would give the Democratic Congress credit.

I'd let the nation know the repugs are playing politics with our military's lives. Our economy is going down the sewer with this corporate White House mob. Stand up and shout, you chick-shit Democrats!! Make a fuss. Say something outrageous and get your puss on the news. Stop being the polite, sit back and see, don't want to rock the boat politicians.

We sent you there to represent us...not to sleep through the worst period in American history and hope that the winds will put out the fire. Get off your lazy asses and make a fuss!!
